You will be picked up at your hotel by your private driver and guide for your tour of The Grand Palace, a must see for every visitor to Bangkok.

Within the compound is the Temple of The Emerald Buddha (Wat Pra Kaew) which houses Thailand`s most precious image of the Lord Buddha. The Emerald Buddha is believed to have supernatural powers and is dressed in robes according to the season by the King of Thailand himself.

NOTE: Please note that when visiting the Grand Palace you will be required to wear proper attire (no bare shoulders, bare knees or strapless-heel shoes). Shoes must be removed before entering all temple buildings as a matter of respect.
